I’m building a website about touristic locations and i need to use the CMS to insert/edit all the locations.
I know the map widget don’t support more than 1 location, but now that we have the Dynamic embed, do anyone know a way i can use some some map service like Google or MAPBOX, etc with the dynamic embed?
Practical case: i have a collections of places that have a longitude and latitude, and when i open the restaurant page, a map shows with all the places that i have on the CMS database, is that possible?
Yes, I really need this feature!
No, I feel that this is not as important as other items on the wishlist.
I just checked out the ‘example’ they gave re: housing details.
I’m sure there isn’t anything like a ‘proximity’ detection or a way to do this with webflow directly.
but making a list doesn’t seem to be very difficult.
(show locations in (selected province)… or city)
You will need to know Java/Jquery in order to add a plugin i think.
search google for ‘multi point google map api’ and adapt one that allows you to access the embed script…
probably looking for a FOR loop to run through the plot points
and you can do all sorts of cool things with the locations… like adding (dynamically) phone number, different icons for markers, and a bunch of stuff…
BUT ONLY if webflow allows jquery/java embed to function.
I had a quick search and found this…
unfortunately I do not know enough java/jquery to give this all a try and definitively say, “YES” you can do it.
But i think the possibility certainly exists to use something that is already built.
OR to build it yourself of course.
As far as it being easy…
the only way I could think of doing it EASY would be to use a completely STATIC map (doesn’t move or zoom)
and then overlap the generated points on that same map. (then somehow force the map point markers z-index to 9999999 so that they are all on top - the same map overlapping but the markers all on top)
but I seriously doubt that would work for many reasons.
I know that “Complex Google map” with many locations on it can be created by connceting spreadsheet to it. So every time you add new address to connected spreadsheet document it will appear on the map. Only thing is that there is no big freedom in styling google maps.
